    So my wife is using a first gen Macbook air and always has to use my Macbook Pro for work.
    i am thinking of getting us a 27''iMac to share and her an iPad mini and or ipad 3 or 4(whatever i can afford at the time) what configuration do you think i'll need i don't have a huge budget.

    My opinion? An iMac (I would consider refurbed unless the specs do not meet your needs to save costs) and a Mini iPad would work perfectly fine. I cannot see why you would need two iPads unless sharing is an issue. If she is only web browsing and listening to music, a mini would be fine IMHO.

    iPad Mini with keyboard

    What about getting the iPad mini with a bluetooth keyboard. That way she doesn't have the excuse to use your iMac for a "real keyboard".
